I ended up bookending my workday with rides yesterday. First up was a shakedown of my old CX/new gravel grinder. The XT rear der with an 11-32 and the Clement X'plor MSO tires work well. Next up will be a pair of 9sp Retroshift shifters and canti brake pads.
After work was the normal Thurs. night shop ride. It was hot. Damned hot. The heat combined with the earlier ride meant my legs checked out early. I struggled mightily on the climb back up to the house then spent some quality time under the garden hose.
